Uhuru meets Ruto for 3 hours, collection of signatures for BBI postponed indefinitely

Sources have revealed that President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto had a 3-hour meeting at state house.

The Deputy President arrived at State House at around 2pm and left at 4pm. After leaving, there was an announcement that the President had postponed the BBI signature launch.

Before the Deputy President went for the meeting at State House, Ruto had said that he would only participate in the referendum if there is no opposition. Sources claim that the meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy influenced the decision to stop the process of collecting signatures for the BBI report.

“I love this country enough never to be part of any war. Not when there is a real possibility for a win-win consensus beckoning. An ‘us vs them, yes/no’ contest that will lead to a lose-lose outcome is unnecessary & unwarranted. A non-contested referendum is possible,” Ruto said before meeting the President.

Room for deliberation

We are yet to confirm the finer details of the meeting. The two leaders asked everyone else to leave the room before commencing the meeting.

Asked whether it was true that the President and his deputy had a meeting, he DP’s Communications Director Emmanuel Tallam questioned why such a meeting was a big deal to anyone.

“How does it become news when Ruto and his boss meet? They serve in the same government,” he said.

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomenlauded President Uhuru Kenyatta for leaving room for deliberations on the BBI report.

“I congratulate President Kenyatta for against all odds/pressure postponing the BBI signatures launch to provide room for consensus. This is the President I knew. Let’s now have a meaningful engagement for a win-win result. We only have one Kenya, let’s listen to all voices,” Murkomen tweeted.

In a press statement, the government revealed that they are working towards a new date. Additionally, there would come up with a comprehensive program of rollout activities.
